(2013)ACTA NEUROPSYCHIATRICA.25(6).p.367-369 Mark abstract Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has proven to be an effective treatment for patients with refractory symptoms in the advanced stages of Parkinson's disease. However, different psychiatric and cognitive problems may occur after DBS. We report a case of a manic episode after DBS of the subthalamic nucleus in a patient with advanced Parkinson's disease. After slow and gradually restart of the neurostimulation using the lowest effective intensity, the motor symptoms remained sufficiently under control without causing any psychiatric problems.
